Everything for your daily needs

Around the typical village piazza, you find grocery stores and bars. A cash dispenser and the post office are also nearby.

We can recommend Ristorante "I Tre Gufi" ("Three Tawny Owls") in medieval Palazzo Marchesale, at the highest point of Pisciotta. From its large terrace you have got a terrific view of the sea, which you should not miss out on.

Beaches at Marina di Pisciotta and Pisciotta-Caprioli

The beach of Marina di Pisciotta is at a walking distance of ca. 1 km along a footpath (partly steps); if you follow the road it is about 3 km. Depending on the current, the beautiful beach has either more sandy or more pebbly sections. Even in midsummer, everything runs at a rather leisurely pace there.

It is towards the evening that the atmosphere at the marina is simply charming: To one side of the beach lies the picturesque village, to the other lies the hilly landscape of the Cilento with its gentle green giants sloping towards the sea.

Instead of going to the beach of Marina di Pisciotta, you might go to the wide and fine sandy beach of Saline 3 km off near Pisciotta-Caprioli. The more than 5 km of beach are ideal not only for bathing and for building sandcastles, but also for taking long walks towards Capo Palinuro.

Colorful weekly market and olive oil from Pisciotta

At the weekly market taking place every Wednesday in the piazza, the displays are often as colorful as the people coming to Pisciotta from the neighboring villages. Countrywomen from the hinterland offer their goods for sale, at the stall "salumi e fromaggi" a chat is always included in the price, kitchen towels, aprons and the typical "caffettiere" are offered as well. After you have done your shopping, stop for a "caffè" and a "cornetto" at one of the bars in the piazza and enjoy this unique atmosphere a little longer!

Pisciotta is not only characterized by its panoramic location. Decades-old olive groves have spread around the village and their tall plants have even been named for the village. The oil produced from their fruit counts among the highest quality extra vergine products in the world and has been DOP-labeled since 1998. 

Activity holiday, transport service & information

From the town, you can undertake several beautiful hiking tours along the coast or into the green hinterland.

During the summer months motor dinghies can be chartered without license at the harbor of Marina di Pisciotta.

The nearest train station Pisciotta-Palinuro is about 3 km from Pisciotta.

From the train station, there is a bus of the Infante-Domenico & Co. company several times daily from Marina di Pisciotta via the train station Pisciotta-Palinuro to Pisciotta. The people running the bar at the train station will gladly help you organize a taxi to take you from the station to Pisciotta.

It is an experience of a special kind: Signor Nello’s Ape-taxi, which, after prior reservation, takes you from the train station to the marina or up to Pisciotta. If you are interested, we will be happy to help you with the reservation.

In July and August, you can use a shuttle bus service between Pisciotta and the marina for 2 Euro per person one-way.
